HDAT2 5.0 Test Or Diagnose All Storage Devices....

HDAT2 by CBL is program for test or diagnostics of ATA/ATAPI/SATA, SSD and SCSI/USB devices.
It will not execute in a DOS session under Windows. You should make a DOS boot floppy disk or CD/DVD and boot your system for it and execute this program from that floppy disk or CD-ROM. HDAT2 5.0 program has 2 levels:

  • Drive level testing - main function is testing and repair (to regenerate) bad sectors for detected devices
    - you get much information about detected device

  • File level testing - read/find/check items (MBR, boot, directories, etc. ) of file system FAT12/16/32

    • - check/remove (regenerates) bad sectors records, flags in FAT table


    • fully implemented commands: SET MAX, SET SECURITY, Device Configuration Overlay (DCO)

    • device access with interrupt 13h, direct via ATA ports, with ASPI drivers

    • detects ATA/ATAPI/SATA devices with on-board and add-on controllers

    • detects devices on AHCI/RAID controllers (just only on ports 0-3)

    • detects USB devices via USB ASPI driver or BIOS (if supported)

    • detects SCSI hard drives via BIOS interrupt 13h or ASPI drivers

    • other SCSI devices are detected via ASPI drivers only (must be loaded before);
      with ASPI drivers you will get more information about SCSI devices

    • test and repair device for bad sector (so far version 4. 5. 3 only)

    • many different test-functions for hard drives

    • size hard drives which supports SET MAX ADDRESS/EXT
      (supports 28/48-bit LBA addressing modes)

    • drive lock detection via security feature (Security Menu)

    • S. M. A. R. T. functions for ATA/SATA and SCSI drives only

    • information about devices (ATA/ATAPI, BIOS interrupt 13h, ASPI, EDD)

    • sector viewer for devices (also for USB, ZIP, CD-data discs)

    • to access ATA/SATA CD/DVD drive you don`t need any driver or MSCDEX

    • enable/disable some features for direct-access devices

    • Device Configuration Overlay (DCO) feature set
      (you can restore a full capacity or allow/disallow some feature sets of hard drive)
